CHICAGO, IL., August 9, 2012 – With the technology boom and local startups stealing the publicity limelight, there is a brick-and-mortar organization that is adding offices, increasing staff and putting more people back to work than any other business in Chicago: LaSalle Network.
As Chicago’s premier staffing and recruiting firm, LaSalle has more than 75 full-time employees and will file 5,000 W-2s for temporary and temporary-to-permanent employees in 2012. Revenue is up 30 percent and business does not seem to be slowing down.
“We have combined an old fashioned work ethic with an aggressive sales strategy…and the results speak for themselves,” said CEO Tom Gimbel. “There are jobs in Chicago and there are good people, we just put the pieces together.”
While small startups may be considered the “belles of the ball” in Chicago, LaSalle is the city’s best kept employment secret. As a six-time Inc. 500/5000 America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies winner from 2007 to 2012, one of the 2012 Best Places to Work in Illinois (http://bit.ly/Lmogle), a 2011 and 2012 Staffing Industry Analysts Best Staffing Firm to Work For (http://bit.ly/N4heWx), and one of Chicago’s 101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For (http://bit.ly/dUXW3I), LaSalle is a force to be reckoned with.
Founded in 1998 by Gimbel, LaSalle Network has experienced 14 years of organic growth and a 700 percent increase in revenue since 2001. Gimbel, a two-time Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year nominee and member of the UIC Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame, has continued to guide his brick-and-mortar brainchild through two recessions and an unstable economy.
